The Hormone Cure. If youre considering first trimester genetic screening, an early ultrasound can help you get ahead of the game and can also look for placenta previa a condition that occurs when the placenta covers the moms cervix.
Fairbrother said. Get screened for gestational diabetes. Gottfried recommends women over 35 get an early screening glucose loading test done at the first prenatal appointment to look for high blood sugar.  Women should then repeat the test between 24 and 28 weeks.
